On July 16, the Software Developer’s Cartel will be hosting Dr. Dane Bozeman and Katherine Crabill who will be sharing about STEM-VRSE.

STEM-VRSE (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics – Virtual Reality in Supporting Education) exists as a 501(c)(3) organization to address the development of a STEM literate population by supporting early career STEM researchers and empower STEM teachers. STEM-VRSE currently acts as a non-profit in College Station, TX, providing cutting-edge support for early career STEM researchers as well as empowering STEM teachers in the K-University education system. As a result, STEM-VRSE possesses access to both early career STEM researchers and pre-service and in-service STEM teachers. The vision of STEM-VRSE centers on the support of early career STEM researchers and the empowerment of STEM teachers in the K-University education system. Our vision, although limited at this time in the scope of working with only a handful of researchers and teachers, anticipates working with thousands of researchers and teachers in both the US and internationally. Our mission allows us to support early career STEM researchers in University and other research environments as well as empower STEM teachers in the K-University education system. Our core values include community building, distributed expertise, and integrity-based interactions with all actors involved in STEM research and education.

Katherine Crabill
